Clinical Trials and Research

We are a leading center for ECMO-related research. Such research is crucial to our mission, as there are many unanswered questions in the field of ECMO that require careful scientific study. Patients may be eligible for an ongoing research study.

Recent Trials: 

  • Ventilation management of patients with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation for acute respiratory distress syndrome: an international multicenter observational research project (The LIFEGARDS Study)
  • ECMO to rescue Lung Injury in severe ARDS (EOLIA)
  • The use of ketamine in patients receiving extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (Ketamine Study)
  • ECMO to avoid intubation in COPD exacerbations
